Tinned Up at Oldham Coliseum, Manchester, 24–26 September 2019, from £16.00 - Book now

Coming to Oldham Coliseum this September, Tinned Up is inspired by Salford streets affected by demolitions, where people were forced to leave their homes to make way for regeneration.

Written by Chris Hoyle (The Newspaper Boy), Tinned Up follows Shirley Parkin and her fight to stay living at her house.

Shirley has lived at number ten Brook Street in Langworthy all of her life and is adamant that she isn’t going to move anywhere else. Spirited and in her sixties, she has defied the council for years, refusing to move out of her modest two-up-two-down terrace. Flanked by Beryl, her foul-mouthed friend, Joy, an unhappy single mother and Daz, a thirty-year-old stoner, Shirley campaigns to keep a local park from the cold grasp of profit-hungry developers.

Tinned Up is presented by 53Two and Manchester Actor’s Platform (MAP).
